metal braces at twin oaks orthodontics, Woodridge, Wheaton. Lisle, Naperville  and Bollingbrook IlMini-Twin: Traditional Metal Braces:

Metal braces are the most common type of brackets. They are made of high grade stainless steel The mini-twin bracket is a smaller metal brace which utilizes elastic ties to hold the arch wire in place. The ties can be any color the patient would like, which makes this traditional metal brace a very popular choice.

Over the course of the treatment, it needs fewer arch wires than standard brackets, which increases overall comfort for the patient during orthodontic treatment.

The metal bracket is also a smaller, more compact size, which enables it to be less noticeable, but not less effective. While its profile is up to 30% smaller than standard traditional braces, it maintains the standard size for its bracket slots, which enables it to maintain the stability and control so important to the treatment process.

Clear or invisible braces serve as a cosmetic alternative to metal braces. Clear brackets are highly translucent, appearing to blend with the enamel from a distance. This makes them a popular choice for our adult patients who may not be candidates for invisalign. Clear braces function the same way as metal braces. The ligatures (tiny rubber bands) that hold the arch wire on to the ceramic brackets are often white or clear which also increases the “invisibility” of the appliances.

speed self-ligating braces at twin oaks orthodontics, Woodridge, Wheaton. Lisle, Naperville  and Bollingbrook IlSpeed Self-Ligating Braces:

The Speed Appliance is a self-ligating brace made from nickel titanium. This makes it easier to operate the opening and closing apertures, while offering you strong, reliable materials to make your treatment progress with efficiency and, as its name suggests, speed.

In addition, because there are no ties to get in the way, patients have found it easier to keep clean, which results in better overall hygiene during the time of treatment.

The self-ligation also cuts down on patient discomfort and gets rid of the friction caused by other appliances. In addition, because it is small, it is less noticeable, which helps patients feel better about themselves as they move through the treatment process.


Invisalign Clear Aligners:

Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It's virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you're straightening your teeth.

Clearly Different

The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.

Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually -- week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!

To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign. Invisalign is not appropriate for every adult. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. Not all patients are candidates for invisalign treatment.
